WHY CRUISE HAWAII?

Discover incredible destinations in Hawaii.

The siren call of Hawaii is irresistible for the adventurous. The eight Hawaiian Islands are the pinnacle of tropical luxury, where sun, sea and sand are more than just words on a postcard – they’re a way of life.

On Maui, look out for whales at Lahaina Harbour. On the Island of Hawai’i (also known as Big Island), you can taste some of the world’s best coffee and discover the active volcanoes of Kīlauea and Mauna Loa. Oahu is home to the capital city of Honolulu – in iconic Waikiki, you can soak up the cosmopolitan vibe and watch the surfers from the beach. 

In the evening, as waves break on the shore, sit back and watch the world go by from the deck of your Celebrity Cruises ship.
